Long & Ryle Contemporary Art. 4 John Islip Street, London SW1P 4PX
April 20th, 2016 – Extended until June 10th, 2016
This, the first exhibition by Paul Coldwell with Long & Ryle, presents a group of recent small sculptures and associated prints which together explore ideas of journey, absence and loss. The sculptures are very much thinking models; propositions about how we might consider landscape, both from an interior perspective but also as seen from photographs and from above through the window of an aeroplane. The prints, developed on screen through the computer are reconstituted and resolved as physical prints, most recently as etchings, in order to reinstate their presence as objects in the world.
The sculptures were all cast in the Foundry at Chelsea College of Art with the assistance of John Nicoll. The etchings plates were made at Byam Shaw, (CSM) with the help of Paul Dewis and then proofed at OBS Oficina Bartolomeu dos Santos, Tavira, Portugal.
Upcoming events include:
– London Original Print Fair (Royal Academy) at which Paul will be giving a talk about his work on Saturday May 7th at 3.30.
– At SASA Gallery (Brisbane, Australia) Coldwell is showing in a five person show along with Aleksandra Antic, Marion Crawford, Joel Gailer, Performprint & Olga Sankey entitled The Unstable Image. 29th March – 22nd April
